    Re: Are You A Smoker?

    I've never tried any cigarette, cigar or other rolled leaf in my life. Never will.

    I do, however, on occasion, smoke my own salmon.

    Re: Are You A Smoker?

    Stupidly started at 24 gave up 2 years ago. Best method that I know of is to just stop one day. Don't give yourself any lead time or appoint a special day, just stop. As well as this, I didn't use any gum or patches.

    Stayed out of bars to avoid tempatation for 3 months.

    First 2 weeks were irritating, but after that it was ok.

    Re: Are You A Smoker?

    I have never been a smoker.

    Different methods of quitting work for different people. Bob Dole quit cold turkey. My sister and one co-worker quit with the patch.

    My dad got lung cancer at 35 back in the early 70's. If it weren't for the fact that he was applying for a job that required a chest x-ray that caught it VERY early, he would have died from it.

    The reason I never wanted to smoke, has nothing to do with the health thing, however (yes, it takes ten years off, but which ten years? What teenager worries about that?!). For me, I never wanted to have an out of control urge. I did not wanted my reason interfered with.

    That said, I am not sympathetic to the move to demonize smokers. I do believe many of them are self-medicating. I do not find smokers contemptible. I find many anti-smokers to be bitter and small-minded.

    I believe that most cities have enough bars and restaurants to have both the smoking and non-smoking kind. We all agree that "naturally monopolistic" places where one has to go for normal and madatory functions (courthouses, Motor Vehicle, airports) should be smoke-free, or perhaps have a separately ventilated smoking room.

    Scotland will be bringing in a new law on the 19th of March. You will not be allowed to smoke in any enclosed public place. that includes all pubs and private clubs.

    you know this means I will need to go leave the Lap dancing bar and go outside to have my cigar .....................

    I'll smoke a good cigar once every three or four months. But with the price of good cigars once every three or four months is all I can afford!
